Welcome to professional wildlife and travel photographer Sue Flood’s website.
I spent 11 years as a wildlife filmmaker with the world-renowned BBC Natural History Unit, which gave me the incredible opportunity to work with Sir David Attenborough on 'Planet Earth' and 'The Blue Planet’ , along with other blue-chip series. After producing several documentaries, I decided that I was enjoying photography more than being a producer/director and made the momentous decision to leave the BBC, leaving on a high after 'Planet Earth'. I was fortunate to be taken on by Getty Images, and was then approached to guide for a high-net-worth client on an extraordinary trip to the Antarctic. Word of mouth then led to more assignments of a similar nature, working from the North Pole to the tropics and I knew I’d found my niche.
Recently I’ve diversified into the wonderful world of garden and estate photography and throughout 2014 and 2015 I have working on a very exciting private commission, photographing a beautiful estate in Oxfordshire. This is under wraps for now but as soon as I’m able to reveal all, I will post news!
I usually spend around 6 months of the year on location, whether guiding wildlife photography trips for private clients, Steppes Travel or Belmond. In 2016 and 2017 I’ll also be guiding and photographing a number of tailor-made private safaris, producing a coffee table book of each unique African adventure as a special memory of the trip.
Sue is thrilled to be leading a trip to the Antarctic, South Georgia and the Falklands for Steppes Travel with TV presenter Monty Halls in January 2017.
Many thanks for your interest in my work.
